Wood Carving Coaster

taught by Yoshisada Ishihara

This workshop will offer you the great opportunity to
create your own wooden coaster
taught by a local Buddhist sculptor at his studio.
Lotus flowers have long been used as a symbol of Buddhism,
especially for the pedestals of Buddha statues,
thus carving a lotus flower is a basic technique for Buddhist sculptors.
ここは職人の町。この建物も建具屋の工房でした。築五十年の時の流れを感じ、あたらしさも感じるデザイン。いたるところに建具屋のエッセンスを散りばめました。さらに彫刻家田中孝明の作品を展示。木の香りを感じ、職人のしごとに触れる宿。井波らしさを感じられます。
